Fortsense announces the world's first under-the-screen LCD fingerprint sensor

China-based Fortsense announced the world's first LCD on-screen fingerprint sensor technology. The company says that it has adopted deep learning neural network algorithms to overcome image artifacts and other issues that prevents regular under-the-display sensors to have clear fingerprint images through the LCD display.

Under-the-display sensor technology has been an advantage of OLED displays that LCDs could not overcome until now - although of course it remains to be seen whether the new Fortsense technology provides good recognition and its implementation cost - and how fast it can be commercialized.
